I've never really lived alone...I went from living with my parents until I got married and moved in with my husband.

At what age did you first live alone? I was wondering what age people will say because a friend of mine asked me if I ever lived on my own.

Depending on what counts as "living on your own" the answer may vary for me.

I was 18 when I moved into a hall of residence at university so I was kinda-sorta-living on my own but only kinda-sorta. Renting a room in someone's apartment doesn't count as living alone so I guess I'd have to say 26, and I lived alone for the huge time of about three weeks before my then-fiancee (now wife) moved in to the place I found.

I had an apartment when I was around 20 for the first time with a roommate who split the rent with me. I lived in an apartment by myself when I was around 24, the year I met my wife.

When I was around 15 I ran away from home, and lived with friends. Not really alone, and it wasn't long before I was picked up by the police.

My first experience of living alone was at age 18, when my folks could legally kick me out, which they did. I lived with friends for a short while, then completely on my own as a young homeless person for some time.

Fast forward through a whole bunch of crazy stuff I moved to another state, found a job and rented an apartment in my early 20's.

Since my wife passed I've lived alone for well over a decade, save for a pet. Been able to deal with it seeing friends regularly. This covid garbage has eliminated that, because as nice as these friends are, they are both hopeless T.V. addicted worldlings with their minds in the hands of corporate media, and I don't see them ever giving up that addiction.

... and then lived with other servicemen?


I too was 18 when I moved out of my parent's house (never to return). But I shared my apartment with another student. I did not live ALONE until I was 22. For about 5 years I lived with no one else but by myself in a one bedroom apartment.

I was 18 or 19 when my parents moved out. Really, they were moving and selling the house. They moved to their new place and I stayed in the house a short while until I got my own apartment soon after. Lived alone until I was 23 and got married.
